    Hi all,

    Just wanted to give my 2 cents with my experience.

    A base-model of the MacBook Pro 13 2018 (TouchBar) is running WAY cooler after updating to a OS X Mojave.
    This is with same usage, for example running Safari with multiple YouTube videos/Netflix, mail and 4-5 apps in the background - no unpleasant heat from the bottom of the Macbook after a while as was earlier.

    Lightroom/Photoshop usage also didn't push to computer to same heat as I remember earlier, but as I never measured this it might be more psychological.

    Bottom line - the computer can be put on your lap for a long periods of time more easily now.

    Have a good one,
    Ofir

    That's the version I'm working with - no issues at all.

    This is great to know! I wonder whether i7 models get unpleasantly warm/hot on lap use - anyone with i7 and Mojave?

    What about battery life difference?

    Again - I'd be commenting more from a psychological aspect as I didn't notice a bad battery life in the first place.

    It does looks like it takes a bit longer to drain, but as I didn't measure the "before", I'd say it's comparable in case there IS a difference. it is not worse, that I can say for sure.

    I have the same experience. Considerably cooler.
